    At the moment I don't really have the facility to do pull-ups at my house, and overhead presses confuse and frighten me! :P

    Any alternative exercises I can do that work the same muscle groups?

    I tried to do a headstand pushup today but couldnt get my legs up. I think I was afraid of toppling over.

    I am an exercise idiot. haha

    I should probably mention the reason I havent watched videos on correct form etc is because i dont own a computer and all streaming media (a la youtube) is blocked on work computers.

    however, i need to find a bit of time to sit down at the boyfriends and watch them. thank you!
